If it wasn’t for the fact that I get no cell service, access to Diet Coke is sketchy at best, and it’s kind of expensive .. well, I could pretty much live here.
We stopped in Coombs on the way to Ucluelet, then at Cathedral Grove (which is way cooler in November, but still pretty):
The wedding is at Black Rock Resort in Ucluelet, and it’s kind of breathtaking here:
Our room is awesome. The bathroom is the size of most Yaletown condos, and it has both a soaker tub and a standalone rainfall shower thingie. We’ve only been here for 6 hours, but we’ve already had a bath and a shower each (we are dirty folk). There’s a little kitchenette in the room, so we stocked up on a few groceries so we have snacks available – and I don’t know if someone warned them I was coming, but there was a full tray of delightfully frozen ice cubes waiting for me in the tiny freezer. It’s such a simple thing, but I appreciate it SO MUCH – I love ice cubes. Lovely, lovely ice cubes. You make my Diet Coke so delicious!
Tomorrow is visiting (for those with families; we are merely handsome spectators) and setup, then on Saturday .. people get married! I know I have a fancy bridesmaids dress to wear and all, but I’m giving serious thought to just showing up in one of the bathrobes made of kittens from our room – SO COMFY. I don’t think Shan will mind; she’s already talking about marrying the robe instead of Josh (which could get awkward if I show up wearing the groom).
It’s been a long day with several more to come, so I’m going to do some naked relaxing while I can. I’m going to be on the go basically until next weekend – we leave the island on Sunday, and I start my new job on Monday. I’m excited about everything between now and November – I should probably try to get some sleep.
